Abstract: This article discusses the conservation efforts to protect Sierra Caral, the most biodiverse forest remnant in Guatemala, from severe deforestation. This is occurring largely due to the forced displacement of campesinos by narco-ranchers in the Motagua Valley. In addition, the article provides the bill's aspects and an in-depth look at what the Sierra Caral conservationists are proposing in their efforts to be sensitive to the displaced residents.
